. >>> a world on the brink. >> would you consider the current egyptian regime an ally to the united states? >> i don't know if we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. >> violence in response to a speech is not acceptable. >> we will bring their killers who justice. >> seen as a party on the brink. >> today romney is the only guy looking presidential. >> george bush's a rock, that's how you install a democracy in the middle east. >> the way you voiced it, it was pretty much what mitt romney said yesterday. >> i think this president is a winner. >> the first response to the united states must be outrage. >> we begin this afternoon with the president and secretary of state both working to address the ongoing crisis in libya, even as the nation continues to mourn the loss of ambassador stevens and three other senior members of the diplomatic staff. the has spoken to the leaders of both libya and egypt, inviting them to step up security while delivering marines and vessels to the region. these demonstrations are spreading to iran, bangladesh, so earlier today secretary of
. there's no way you can shut down outrageous speech in the country of the united states, it's going to happen, but if the responsibility of responsible officials in egypt and other countries throughout the world to take actions to protect embassies and they are the ones who are responsible, and the extremists sure -- stirring up the crowds are responsible. talking about the video really is to distract from the real problem. gerri: you have a lot of experience in these proceedings as deputy secretary of defense under george w. bush. people staid it's bush's fault the arab world is in unrest today. do you agree? how do you respond? >> i don't at all. look, these extremists were breeding in the arab world for years under horrible dictators. 9/11 happened with basically before george w. bush even appeared, and i believe in fact that the dictatorships of the arab world gave credit the to the extremists who attacks the governments for denying freedom to their people. sooner or later, those governments collapse both because of age and also, frankly, because ashes want freedom as well, and
. there is the united states of america. there is not a black america and a white america and latino america and an asian america, but there is the united states of america. >> from the first time he took to the kconvention speech as th keynoter in 2004, there has been no doubt that barack obama can step into the spotlight and dazzle. four years later in denver, the optics match the excitement for the presidential campaign with greek columns surrounding him in front of a crowd of more than 75,000, and the democratic nominee delivered an electric speech. >> out of work, tough luck, you are on your own. no health care? the market will fix it. you're on your own. born into poverty? pull yourself up by your own boot straps, because even if you don't have boot, you are on your own. well, it is time for them to own their failure. it is time for us to change america, and that's why i'm running for president of the united states. >> this week in tampa, the republicans argue that barack obama is a great talker who doesn't deliver. it frames a dilemma for the third speech at a democratic national conv
the united states is weak and withdrawing and you do that, you leave a power vacuum. jenna: joining us now, -- kt mcfarland, fox security analyst. you worked inside a variety of administration as part of the defense department. what do you think is going on here? >> initially, jenna, i thought, okay they don't want to be accused after mission accomplished moment. president said we won the war or terror. bin laden is dead and now he is campaigning. if it looks like there was terrorist attack or maybe al qaeda affiliation they don't want to say that so they really didn't want to have that mission accomplished banner behind them going into an election. now if what we just uncovered here at fox news with bret baier, if the administration knew on day one it was not only a terrorist attack but it was an al qaeda attack, if they knew before day one because there was a defense department public report saying al qaeda in libya, a profile, what did they know and when did they know it? i worked in the white house during water gaet -- watergate, the steady constant drip, drip, drip, the story changed
to be prepared to, you know, just coming on to the stage with the president of the united states gives you some gravitas right there. and typically in the first debate -- the challenger was declared the winner. so let's just keep in mind that we can't take anything for granted. let's focus on the ground game. we've got 40 days to go. >> you've got a good day one. that's for sure. congresswoman deb bie wasserman-schultz with us on "the ed show." thanks so much. answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on twitter @edshow and facebook. we want to know what you think. >>> coming up, yes, there's another video of mitt romney. it has surfaced and shows his true identity of how he views middle class workers in america. we'll show you the video and robert reich will comment. sleep train's inventory clearance sale is ending soon. save 10%, 20%, even 35% on a huge selection of simmons and sealy clearance mattresses. get 2 years interest-free financing on tempur-pedic. even get free delivery! sleep train stacks the savings high to keep the prices low. but hurry, the inven
public investments. our good schools, our universities. medicare, security. and that in the united states when those two have met, when individual initiative has met with a common sacrifice and investment by the nation, that's what's created upward mobility. and the ability to reach the american dream in our society that makes america unique. and i put before the nation the clear choice that we have in this election between a leader in barack obama who will -- who has been doing that, making those investments and will in the future and another leader who would scale back from those investments and therefore i think hinder america's ability to be the land of opportunity going forward for everyone. >> where did you come up with that line of the night? i think it was the best line so far in this convention where you said mitt romney said just ask your old man for money when you want to start a business. you said why didn't i think of that? where did you come up with that great sarcasm? >> what i wanted to do was be optimistic but point out the differences. as the first lady pointed out very
that as a man accepts his party's nomination for president of the united states, to be our commander in chief, he didn't even mention the war we were fighting, which will be our longest war, not to mention he didn't mention anything about veterans and our sacred obligation to them. i find it stunning. i find his comments in the aftermath of that stunning. his response to bill crystal's criticism and fox news' criticism of him, it's remarkable. what i have been talking about, martin, is what an exceptional president and commander in chief president obama has been. he's done exactly what he said he was going to do by ending a war in iraq, setting us on a path to hand over authority in afghanistan by 2014. making sure that we refocused our efforts on going after al qaeda in afghanistan and pakistan, decimating al qaeda. you saw the news yesterday what happened in yemen. proving the mission to eliminate osama bin laden from the face of this earth, and also and importantly, this is something i'm not sure romney and ryan understand, honoring the commitment we have to our veterans when they return.
would be the democratic nominee and president of the united states if that was the case. you have to give people a reason to vote for you. >> steve, you make pay compelling argument there. the debates, perhaps, michael, the next opportunity and the last opportunity for mitt romney to make this case. both sides have elised memos. this is beth myers of the romney campaign. this is what she says in part. it's clear that president obama will use his ample rhett for cal gifts in debating experience at one end. we expect a 90-minute attack ad. david axelrod not to be outdone by the obama campaign. saying we expect mitt romney to be prepared, disciplined and aaggressive. the first debate generally favor challengers. both sides are trying to manage expectations here? >> absolutely. >> this guy's really good. >> how do we get in the ring with him all of a sudden? >> right. >> they're skilled on their feet. that's how they got this far. i don't know that the second and third debate will matter that much for governor romney if there isn't something significant out of debate number one. >> i
of the united states ever handed a bigger financial crisis over to the guy that followed him than george bush did? >> well, if you look at -- >> yes or no. >> yeah, sure. >> who? >> herbert hoover. herbert hoover. >> well, herbert hoover took all the same policies, i mean, fdr didn't do anything that herbert hoover didn't do. higher taxes, more spending, more regulations, and it didn't work for hoover -- >> are you saying that fdr was the same as herbert hoover? >> well, he did hoover took tax rates up to 75% from 25%, fdr took them up towards 90%. he did massive spending, did all that regulation of the farm industry. nothing particularly new, just a little bit more and of course, it didn't work -- >> but grover, grover, interesting parallel. an interesting parallel. >> that's remarkable. >> wait, wait, wait. unless my memory's wrong, fdr was the only other president in certainly modern history who ever got re-elected with unemployment over 8% because the people believed that he had the right vision going forward to turn things around. isn't that a very similar position to what we're now seei
in business and financial debt in the future. it will sink our economies, all of us, europe, united states, everybody. lori: harry dent, many thanks for your time and analysis. your forecasting is always great. melissa, chorus is growing louder of private debt bubbles. he makes a great point. melissa: he really does. when comes to gold competitiveness the u.s. is failing again. up next find out where we rank and why the drop and we'll get the take from lou dobbs on all of it. lori: i mentioned in the shot that european yields are coming down. here in the u.s. they're unchanged. we saw buying earlier on some weaker, if you will, economic news. the productivity was sky-high but of course wage growth was muted that is a huge disappointment. our bosses are squeezing everything they can out of us. back with more after this. lori: you're going to get in hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy. >> i'm cher
with the united states that's strong and at the same time they're a democracy that is an islamic democracy, a political islamic party running it and charting a path to try to play all different angles and they criticized israel. they criticized iran. certainly, in the days ahead it's interesting to watch. >> jim, watching morsi and the president's relationship develop and the president give the interview about not being an ally, not being an enemy, but egypt has been such a critical ally over the years, certainly through mubarak and relied heavily on the billions of dollars that we have sent and taxpayer dollars. does it come down now more to who needs more more? >> egypt has a treaty definition is and has been an ally and probably will be an ally. i think an underreported aspect of what obama's comments could have been interpreted as is a personal message while egypt is an ally, you know, it is not -- there are strings attached and we need to make sure to do business with each other, man to man, person to person, leader to leader. so yeah. i think that morsi is charting his own path but h
the president of the united states needs mr. clinton to help him with that narrow sliver of undecided voters, especially women ages 30 to 50 who grew up with bill clinton as sort of their teenage or childhood president. that's important. the second thing is is that bill clinton and hillary clinton need barack obama. they need him to perform strongly and to do well, because if barack obama loses and loses on the scale of a carter, that is very bad for the democratic brand for years to come and that is not helpful to a, perhaps, nominee or presidential candidate hillary clinton. so on many levels, this is -- they are living vicariously off each other and through each other, and as i said to a buddy of mine back stage a minute ago, clearly they are carrying each other's bags now and that's probably not a bad thing for today's politics. >> one of the interesting tidbits in this new yorker story looks at the -- pardon me. one of the interesting tidbits, sorry, i was hearing something in my ear there. one of the interesting tidbits looks at clinton's strategic advice to barack obama. look, you att
if you want to see barack obama re-elected president of the united states, do whatever you can for virgil goode. they challenged his spot on the ballot and they said put him on the ballot anyway, and he's going to be on the ballot unless virginia's attorney general, this guy, decides to kick virgil goode off the ballot. he's been campaigning for mitt romney including last week at the republican convention. under virginia law, he gets to decide whether virgil goode gets his name on the ballot or not. look at the headline, he promises he will be absolutely objective about this whole thing. absolutely. virginia is getting three different mitt romney ads this week. virginia, ohio, new hampshire, iowa, colorado, nevada, north carolina, florida. that's it, that's the election. who the country is counting on to handle this election about the presidency for the rest of us, eight states. when stuff gets weird in one of those eight states, when something like virgil goode happens in one of those eight states, while that might be a weird side bar virginia story at any other time in any other politic
in columbus. >> that's why i'm running for a second term as president of the united states. >> four more years! f four more years! >> hold on a second. hold on a second. i want you to know though because some of you may not have been paying attention at the convention because, you know, you were still thinking about michelle and how good she was. [ cheers and applause ] or maybe you're still talking about president clinton and how he broke it down. [ cheers and applause ] well, i want everybody to be clear, the path i'm offering isn't quick or easy. it's going to take more than a few years to deal with all the challenges that we face. but let me tell you something, when i hear the other side talking about how the nation is in decline, i tell them, you must not be getting out much. because this is america. and we've still got the best workers in the world and the best entrepreneurs in the world and the best scientists and researchers in the world and the best colleges and universities in the world, and there's not a country on earth that wouldn't trade places with us right now. so i'm confident
, at age 5 or 6, there was revolution and they came back to the united states. and my dad had to get help, financial help. the government helped his family to be able to get on their feet again. by the way, that's the way america works. we have big hearts. we care for people who have needs. we help get them back, we help lift them up. but then we don't make that a permanent lifestyle. we don't have that become government dependence. we help people, we get them on their feet. >> mitt romney speaking just moments ago at univision's meet the candidate event at the university of miami. somewhat changing his language on immigration reform, talking about his dad as an immigrant from mexico. also defending his january remarks at another point in his speech that he was in favor of self-deportation. a video emerged the today on the campaign trail from when governor romney's father, george romney, was running for governor in the state of michigan. his wife, lenoir, talking to an interviewer about how, in fact, george romney had received welfare relief for a few years when first coming to this count
court may very well hang in the balance. >> listen, i'm the second most bipartisan in the united states senate, was recently named by washington onmagazine as the least partisan senator. >> senator brown voted in the only chance had he against a pro-choice woman. it's not just about senator brown's vote, this is about the votes of all of the republicans. jim inhoff, the senator, would become the person who would have supervision over the environmental protection agency. >> you're not running against jim inhoff. you're running against me, professor. >> more jim inhoff references in that debate than even references. >>> moving on to virginia, another race where four polls in the last two weeks have the race razor tight. fiscal issues dominated a debate moderated by nbc's david gregory who pressed both candidates to respond to romney's remarks d disparaging 47% of households that pay no federal income tax. >> you think nearly half the country see themselves as victims because they're too dependent -- >> no. i see people -- i've looked very positively of the people of virginia -- >> you wou
to be president of the united states. this is nuts. if he simply filed normally, taking the deductions he was legally able to take, he would have paid a lower tax rate than he paid. purely for show he deliberately inflated his tax rate on purpose. on mad o owe blog today it was said mr. romney was in the preferred selection of selecting his own tax rate and then working backwards from there. this is a mess for the romney campaign. in these new tax returns we learn mr. romney made $13 million in total income last year. aside from the gee whiz factor of his making $13 million a year, even though he hasn't had an actual paying job since 1999, aside from that there is also the fact that even other average millionaires in this country pay way more in taxes than mitt romney pay. your average tax rate for your run of the mill millionaire now is 25%. but mitt romney is a special kind of millionaire. he doesn't pay 25%. he only pays 14.1%. how do you get 10 points below the rate that even the other millionaires are paying? you get that by trying, by working really hard by avoiding taxes. as the wa
the president of the united states is the woman person yet to acknowledge it was a terrorist -- is the only person to acknowledge it was a terrorist attack. why he will not do it i do not know. >> geraldo: what details would you like from senator clinton, i mean secretary of state clinton? >> we would like to see any communications from chris stevens or any other member of the embassy or consulate in libya leading up to the days of the attack on 9/11 if in fact the information in the diary is correct it has been reported, i cannot believe that they did not have earlier warning that this attack was going to take place. shoe so you are not going to wait for the fbi then, senator? >> no. and i'm a signatory on the letter. i wanted to make this clear, geraldo. we voted in the committee on the 18th of september to send the letter. it was not sent until the 27th. between the 18th and 27th the information came out about the diary that is when senator corker of tennessee and myself sent the letter asking for the communiques. we believe if chris stevens' diary is correct he sent information to the a
a resume-builder. he would love to be president of the united states. he doesn't want to really give service to the country. he doesn't want to give a contribution to the country. he doesn't want to protect the people. he wants the title, to be president. and that goes down as a part of who and what his resume was all about when he passed this way, as they say, in my church. the fact of the matter is, mitt romney seems not to be in touch with ordinary people who work hard every day, people who earn income. you know, the earned income tax credit, which allows a working family not to pay taxes, is a republican program. >> absolutely. was milton friedman's idea. it was paul ryan's guru who recommended that as an ideal incentive for the working poor. and yet now they treat these people with contempt. >> absolutely. i mean, ronald reagan said it was the best anti-poverty program going when he expanded the program after signed into law by president ford. so these are real good, make work pay kind of programs that romney seemed to be disdainful of. i don't quite understand that except he ma
